XBOX Eclipse Controller
Good but not great
Note that description says this is a 10ft chord. I got mine at my local Gamestop and it was a 6ft chord. The controller is very comfortable in the hands and is a tad smaller than the official XBOX controller by Microsoft. While the analogs are nowhere near as good as the original S they are good enough to get the job done. The face buttons A,B, X,Y, Black and White are all sturdy and responsive. The same could be said with the L and R triggers. D Pad seemed decent as well. Overall in my opinion not as good as the original S but as those are getting really hard to find this is a good alternative for those looking to play their original XBOX.
A solid controller made for better gaming.
This controller is awesome and easily is better than the original clunky controller. The original controller is just too big for me in my opinion and really gets in the way. This controller is much smaller and better for much faster gaming as well. The only two problems with it is the short cord length and how easily the controller gets unplugged. If you can get past that, you are all good.
this controller is a very good use for the xbox. i had just bought my used xbox from one of the local gamestops, and i didnt want to buy those cheapy big controller's that they used to sell, so i bought one of theese eclipses. well iwent home and plugged it in and i said, wow this is a very comfortable controller. i played spiderman 2 with the controller all day, it was really good comfort. the functionality of this controller works good, and sometimes when you just get an xbox or xbox 360 its kind of confusing when you have a playstation 2, and it kind of sucks that your hands get really used to this controller. but usually when you get used to the controller you won't be playing a lot of playstation, unless you have playstation 3 lol. oh well in the end i give the eclipse an 8/10 hope you agree with me. i recomend this product to all of you people who plan on going out to buy a xbox. because playing on an original xbox can be a lot of fun. you just gotta give up that playstation, i mean come on the xbox needs to come back with more games!
1st off I ordered 2 of these XBOX Eclipse Controller.. I bought one from another place 2 weeks before for a few bucks and it broke the first week of using. So someone told me about this site and now here I am. I would recommend this product and many more to all my friends. The price is right and the product works great plus has a good warranty. I am not much of a gamer but I am getting my granddaughter into playing games and the way kids are with breaking things .It is great to know of a place such as gamestop of where I can get her stuff within a few days. I am very pleased with what I bought and I will be buying more off and on. I know I could drive 25 miles to one of there stores.But alot of times it is just as easy to do it here on there web page. Great product thanks
The Xbox Eclipse Controller is average. The original Xbox controller is cheaper and more comfortable. The Eclipse controller is much smaller, making it a little unconfortible. After using both controllers I think that Microsoft could've had more thought put into the design of the Eclipse controller when they made it. Also the first time you drop the Eclipse controller the thing that makes it vibrate during the games breaks. If you accidently drop the original Xbox controller it still vibrates and works well. You dont get much grip on the Eclipse controller either because is to small. The only good thing about the Eclipse controller is the thumbsticks and the D-Pad are a little bit bigger than on the original Xbox controller. In the end the original Xbox controller wins.
